Apply for University’s new International Grant!

Education and Learning Services of Tampere University is setting a grant of €30,000 up for applying for the associations operating within TREY – Student Union of Tampere University. Awarding the grant to associations is coordinated with the student union. By awarding the grant, Tampere University wishes to support and encourage associations to advance operations that help students to internationalize more. Moreover, the grant is designated to support associations to integrate international students (degree students and exchange students) into student communities.

Furthermore, Tampere University supports student associations and students by other means as well, e.g. grants for 2019 have already been awarded to choirs and music groups. From 2020 onwards, all grants will be handled and set to be applied for as a unity.

A working group consisting of representatives from Financial Services, Support Services of Education and Learning, Communications and the Student Union prepares matters that awarding the grant involves. The working group makes a proposal of awarding the grant and handles reports concerning how it is spent. In addition, the working group prepares the future application periods. After the proposal is complete, the rector and the vice rector of education deliberate it.
